      Nice trunk. Does it have the inserts and can you take more photos?

      Generally speaking this is a mid-quality late 1890's to early 1900's cross slat trunk. The parts, style and form where common and many makers made this type of trunk. With no label it will be hard to know which company made it. They bought common parts for theses trunks that appeared in period magazines for orders. A lovely family heirloom....

      Wow! Came here for exact same question, trunk almost identical and I'm from Memphis. Any idea on value?

      There should be comparable trunks for sale in your local adds -- value is not really high... other than family history...
